  1. Just the other day I started to notice a vibration/rattle noise coming from the front passenger side around 70mph. It almost sounds like the windshield, or what you would expect something rattling against glass to sound like. I can’t pinpoint where it’s coming from, but’s somewhere within the vicinity of the passenger side dash/windshield/headliner area. Sounds more like it’s around the headliner area. It it mostly only seems to happen at higher speeds (70+mph) although today I did just today hear it at 60mph for the first time. My guess is maybe the the windshield is leaking some air since it happens at higher speeds??? Because going over bumps doesn’t seem to have any negative or positive impact on the noise. Anyone else have any issue like this, or any guess as to what it might be?
  2. 2018 2500 hd, my windshield washers spray low on the windshield. Can they be adjusted? Does not appear so. Thanks
  3. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 (SRW) Duramax Crew 4x4 WT model 6 1/2’ bed. I sideswiped an embankment and damaged the driver side starting with the headlight assembly (which is toast) all the way back to the rear bumper. Luckily as far as the eye is concerned it’s not really all that bad and it’s all on the lower panels and quite livable. But have to do headlight and they want $650 for that puppy!!! In an attempt to save money I am very curious because next to it I also own a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 regular cab 2 door, WT model 8’ cargo bed. It’s already beat up and it’s just a secondhand truck I have for doing things and would gladly swap parts and not care about how that truck looks! Did they do a model swap in 2015 and have two different 2015 versions cuz always been curious for sometime now that whenever I look up parts they always say 2014-2018 OR 2015-2019??? Why the overlapping years? Would think it would be 2014-2018 and 2019-??? Anyway can anyone tell me if the following body parts can be swapped or if there is a website that cross references such things? Looking at it with the “eye” they look identical and would be a perfect fit but know how things like that go... I can supply both vin numbers if that helps. 1) Windshield 2) Front driver fender 3) Headlight assembly 4) Rear bumper Not worried about the trim as in chrome or black. 3500 has chrome rear step bumper and 1500 black step but would actually prefer the black anyway! Hard one to decide is the headlight assembly as once again 3500 chrome and 1500 black but other than that are they identical as far as fitment is concerned? Thanks!
  4. Since I started working with the company I'm currently associated since last April I've had a 2016 Silverado. Every now and then the fluid comes out but 98-99% of the time it doesn't. When I took it into the dealership to get some basic work done on it I had them check it and of course it worked. They said it was probably frozen, which makes sense, but it also happened a lot during the summer. The washer fluid has been topped off and it still isn't working. Any ideas? Thank you!
  5. Has anyone taken delivery of a new vehicle that had a distinctive marking on the windshield? I purchased the truck new and did not see anything when I drove it off the lot. You can only see it when the light enters the windshield a certain way. Pic attached. I have tried a clay bar with no success. Any other ideas out there? If I can't remove it, I am going to seek a warranty repair. Thanks in advance.
  6. I have a 2014 Silverado 1500 LT2, I bought it a week ago (got a steal, $15,000 and it's a crew cab!) but one of the reasons I was able to negotiate such a good price was because the windshield wipers didn't work and it wasn't just the fuse so the dealer didn't want to try to figure out the issue. After little research I discovered that occasionally on some trucks the engine fuse box has a wiring problem so it needs to be replaced. Easy fix, right? I buy one on eBay for $50 and replace it last night, takes 3 minutes. Turn the key to ON and the wipers work. Great, all is well I thought... ...then half an hour later I go to my truck to drive to a friend's house and when I turn the key to START the truck doesn't respond at all. I'm assuming my transponder key was tied to the fuse box somehow. I swap the fuse boxes and it starts right up but again, I have no windshield wipers. One option I have is to tear into the fuse box and repair the broken wire for my wipers but I would literally have to drill it out of its casing so I'm not trying to get in that deep. I would rather program the key to the new fuse box. But here's the catch 22, you need one programmed key to work before you can program another spare key. If I swap the fuse box and my wipers work, my key won't work and I can't program it or another spare. Is there another way to program a key?
  7. Not sure where to put this, but thought it was a valid topic for anyone having a windshield replaced and has ADAS on their vehicle (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems); HUD, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, etc. While searching for more info, as well as justification to spend the extra $$ for the infamous Windshield Calibration that many reference, I found these videos that offer a good incite. What is ADAS? Tech Talk: ADAS (2016) Video showing the tools needed for the various ADAS Calibrations Example video of calibration for Lane Keep Assist (2018 accord) ADAS Camera Calibration - Toyota
  8. For Sale is the original Driver's Side Windshield Pillar Trim Piece. It is from a 2018 Sierra Denali w/ Black leather interior, so I (think) that means it's the Shale color? Either way the Part Nos. are as follows: 23463713 - Grey; 23463712 - Shale I replaced this item with the Oh Sh*t pillar mod, but I figured someone could make good use of this if they want to either replace a column that was cut on to make room for a custom programmer mount OR they want to custom fab a programmer mount and would rather do so without this piece missing off their truck while they do it! This part is not expensive, so I'm only looking to get $20 Shipped for it.. But it's literally brand new and I figure someone out there could have some use for it! PM me or call/text @ 405.642.9097 for more details Thanks! Lance
  9. Hello Everyone! As the title suggests, i wanted to share that have finally stumbled upon the perfect product to clean windshields: Dirt Cheap, Super Effective and Easily Available: Vinegar Im Sure many old school guys have known this trick for years, but with all the hype detailing products have brought to the market, i have to say that, at least for me, it was not common knowledge Rainy season has returned to my city and No matter how hard i tried to get rid of grease and Spots of contamination like bugs, road grime or acid rain with DishWasher Soap and RainX, i just couldnt make the glass perfecly clear. That is, Until Now. The great thing about vinegar is that it attacks contaminants without interfering with RainX or Wax that you already have on your windows. This is specially important to me because i travel a lot and actually prefer driving at night, and cant stand glare. In case of an emergency (e.g. having an unexpected trip or a truck splashes me with asphalt or grease pothole water) Vinegar is pretty much available anywhere to get my vision up to speed. I know there are products out there which would be even better for cleaning automotive glass, but i havent found any that are readily available for me The steps i follow to deep clean my windshield are as follow: -Wash the Windshield with Dish Soap and microfiber towel -Rinse the Soap with clean water -Wash again with a mix Vinegar and Water of 50-50 and Shop Towel -Rinse the Vinegar with clean water -Dry The Windshield with clean Shop Towel -Seal the now Clean Glass with RainX or Car Wax I also Like to clean the windshield on the inside with RainX because it makes it super easy to clean. TL:DR I Made a Video Explaining the Steps and Show The Results up Close. I hope this thread helps anyone who is searching for an excellent alternative way of cleaning a windshield Regards to Everyone
  10. Alright stupid question but does anyone know what size the 14 Silverado windshield is. Getting a banner made and I need the size. From side to side.
  11. Just got a rock chip on my windshield and am wondering if anyone has had this sort of thing repaired by a glass installer/repairer such as Safelite. Am curious as to what the end result was and what it looked like after the repair. I don't want the chip to develop into a major crack with winter coming on by moisture getting in the chip and freezing.
  12. Hey everyone. So I was cruising a rural freeway yesterday and the guy in front of me decides to hit the brakes and then throw on his blinker and immediately hit the shoulder before the turn lane begins. He kicks a block of broken asphalt up at me. I saw it coming and actually ducked. It left a triple chip in the window, not exactly in my line of vision but close. It is not deep and does not appear like it has or will crack anything. Its just the surface layer. So my question is- should I just get one of those adhesive repair kits to fill the 3 little chips? (I've done it before on older vehicles. I can buy one for like $10 online) Or is the repair pointless and I should just ignore it and wait for the inevitable crack and full window replacement down the road? could be weeks, could be years, but I know this glass won't last the life of the truck. I tried to search for windshield chips and nothing came up, so just looking for pros and cons to the self-repair job. Thanks.
  13. I'm having trouble finding wiper blades that fit my 2015 Sierra. So far I've been to O'Reilly and Advanced Auto Parts and both stores did not have any blades that included the attachment clip for the wiper arm on my truck. What brand are you guys using for replacement wiper blades?
  14. Ive got a 2003 Yukon XL 1500 that has given me fits with the windshield wipers. It has been a great truck but i think I've just had some bad luck when it comes to the wipers. Ive already replaced the windshield wiper motor twice. I hit an ice storm in NC last month and it wiped out my passenger side wiper (if one was going to go luckily it was that one) The motor obviously isnt the issue this time because the driver side still works fine. Seems as though maybe the pax side wiper fell off it track? Any suggestions?
